Trip Planner:   Asia  /  South Korea  /  Seoul  /  Insadong

Insadong, Seoul

Once the prime district to find antiques and ancient art, Insadong remains at the heart of Seoul's cafe culture. The main street, which the municipality blocks off on weekends to allow for safe pedestrian traffic, branches off into narrow alleys, lined with art galleries, teahouses, and garden restaurants. Traditional and modern Korean art are available for viewing and purchase at over 100 local galleries. Munch on taffy and pajeon (Korean pancake) from street vendors while you explore. Plan my trip to Seoul with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • Being commercialized these days a lot of floating hot place is a little run, but a sense of Insa-dong is Insa-dong. Near Gwanghwamun, the cheonggyecheon stream, Myeong-dong is also gathered a huge advantage as other spots ~
